On Are You Smarter Than a Legal Rockstar? Obamacare at the Supreme Court

you'd think that great legal minds would know that a gun is not broccoli and broccoli is not healthcare. that Originalism bent of Scalia's seems to create the very slippery slopes he fears. seems like a position guaranteed to limit progress and well-being.

On Sympathy For Jonathan Franzen

Thanks for posting this. Helpful perspective. You really think he's America's best living novelist? I thought The Corrections was pretty good, and that's all. I have a hard time understanding why we care what he thinks of Wharton. The article strikes me as immature, subjective, and inaccurate, and not much else. Having cojones is nice, but it's hard to think of that as constituting good criticism. Anyway, I liked your post.
